    You can impeach, but not convict. So why impeach ? For another headline? Barry was elected twice, he is our president. So in two years we have the ability to retake the Senate and WH,and what are we doing to do with that?

    @RedDawning
    My pastor sees America heading that way and realizes what is possibly ahead for him. He also has publicly stated numerous times that he will never comply. He won’t. May God give him and all of us the strength to stand strong in what we know lies ahead.

    Does your Pastor remarry people 2nd-3rd time or more times as many ” Christian” churches do? The Christ called this adultery absent immoral acts. Does your Pastor research who was immoral? If he/she does I respect them.If not. just another phony church.

    @VTDave
    I can see by some of the replies, that some believe that more wrong makes things right.

    Not quite. All sin is sin,period. The question the gay marriage raises is how can ” Christian” ministers be outraged to gay marriage,sinful, but every week marry straights on the 2nd-3rd marriage, sinful and adulterous? Two wrongs never made a right. However,if two acts are wrong,how does one get blessed? Why? Some abominations are celebrated and blessed. If pointing that out is mistaken it’s on your part, not mine. Even my hypocrisy has it’s limits.

    That white flag of yours is getting a lot of use these days…..maybe a swap to a Gadsden might stiffen that rubbery spine of yours ? Maybe ? Maybe not

    Like I use to tell my teen daughter, slamming that door is not going to change anything. No white flag and my spine doesn’t and bangs over somethings I disagree with. A stiff spine would work to change a law,show determination,purpose,a goal. Shooting guns won’t change anything, grow up and grow a pair. And never discount and party,including Tea, can support a poor candidate and is not a reflection of anything else. When all is said, he could not get voters to polls and lost. They can blame whatever they want,they failed to ignite either the base or the independents. How do we fix that? Shoot guns…sure,why not.

  • June 25, 2014 at 4:45pm

    I never understood Rs or D’s voting in the other’s primary! However,until changed that is the law of the land, so we should all vote for the most witless D possible in their primary. Then we can have the 2 worst possible people getting elected. Or if we can’t handle this odd voting rules, shoot something. Cause when the stress level rises, grab a gun. It always ends well. Jog, workout, 1 cold beer? Why not jet down to the TX border and feed the illegals.Stressed out people grabbing their guns over a legal, if disappointing, election may shown some emotional issues middle age adults should not be having. He could work to support a change in the law.

    She could just start her own Church of Current Day Saints…good enough for Joe Smith should be good enough for her. They use to have an odd view of Africans also.

    Somebody hit a nerve, money is the mother’s milk of show biz. The fear mongering gets old after a while, the false stories and half truths and disgraced “experts” brought on to agree with you. One more supporter leaves. More people coming in or leaving ? Lonesome Rhodes had it all and then starting believing his own headlines. The rodeo clown who made good and funny observations of the days events was pretty darn good, You might even suggest John Stewart took a few ideas. Except Stewart didn’t take himself seriously. Beck is so lost. Maybe Friday he will have super secret information that will bring down the govt.! Tune in on Monday. Send money to Glenn so he can give it to illegal aliens. I bet CNN and MSNBC will tell us all what a warn heart Glenn has…he needs fresh blood,he’s milked the old fans dry.

    You’re one of those people I hate to listen to. You spout off a lot of Bull **** as if you are the only one with the answers. Newsflash: You might be an idiot.
    Go ahead and shame yourself.

    I know hearing a view different must be ******** from an idiot, cause if it’s not what would that say of your view. If Rafael is actually nominated and loses to the D, am I glorified ? If he wins I’m shamed ? What color is the sky in your world.We are talking about our nations future and the need to turn it back on course. That requires a leader not a populists throwing off sound bites. I don’t want 3 horrible, unelectable candidates in a row. Rafael is a young man and if he would like to be Gov. of TX for a term or two and have some time actually running something and a record of success and failure I would be happy to reconsider. I don’t want another 4-8 years of a D in the White House so I must be an idiot, shamefully.

    ‘I’ve Lost My Patience with You’….after 3 hours of learning nothing I feel that way about Issa.
    Everybody is upset,the D’s for asking questions,the IRS head is an arrogant bureaucrat and the R’s, Trey excepted , are drunk punching smoke and don’t knowing why they aren’t getting a hit. It’s called immunity Issa, if a crime happened you offer it to those lower level to flip on the higher ups,then some higher ups flip on higher ups. Or you really did have the usual total incompetence mandatory in Govt. $10-30 million to save hard drives ? Disk check is a program in XP and checks the hard drive, repairs or blanks out bad sectors and generates a report and can be scheduled to do so with a few clicks and it’s no additional cost. What’s worse? The IRS or the witless oversite leadership?

    @Cosmos102
    And you, Jim S, believe you are the font of wisdom and intelligence by saying we need another Democrat Lite to run as the Republican candidate so we might have a chance at winning? Did you watch Romney’s campaign at all?
    Nope,never said I know it all,that’s Rafael. I have never voted for a Democrat in my 60 years. The last President I respected was Reagan, warts, faults and all. If you think a few dead in Libya was bad, 200 + dead Marines in Beirut was worse. I didn’t vote for Barry or McCain or Mitt. They were all bad, just bad differently. Rafael strikes a nerve is stating the obvious I agree. The question is can he get elected and if elected can he lead? Based on his short time in the Senate he has managed to be a fringe ignored member. That is not the signature of a leader. Reagan was not a milk toast country club Republican and yet managed to bring together both parties to help make America better. Tell me the great legislation Rafael has sponsored and had passed? That is what leaders do, not alienate the other side and most of their own. Well done is far superior to well said. Rafael says things well but cannot get them done, so far. He can’t get elected with 15% of the Republican/Tea Party. The D’s would love Hillary vs Rafael. I don’t understand why R’s don’t see it. We’ll all find out. However,without a broader support base, start saying Madame President. I would rather not support a loser, 80% is not 20% my enemy.

    @fortherecord
    JimS, First of all, those G-d said to kill were already killing others as well as conquering and raping and stealing and doing just about every other evil anyone could do.
    Second Christianity came from Judaism so according to the Christian bible, it’s supposedly the same G-d.
    Third, Jesus himself was violent (knocking Paul off his horse and overturning the tables in The Temple, for example).

    Thanks for comparing the Christ’s knocking a guy off a horse and turning over a table to the tens of thousands killed by Jews and the slaughter the Koran commands. I guess pointing out what I said must be anti somebody vs a statement of what is written. Reread the OT,taking the land of non chosen, killing them and their children in front of them and taking the women as “booty” has the Jewish God’s blessing. Well the Bible says so. But like Arnie told his wife that yes he has killed people BUT they were all bad. So nice to kill for God but bad to be killed for God by others. Sure why not. Quoting the OT is so antisemitic and quoting the Koran is anti-Muslim…I know. People have killed in the name of Christ, Christ NEVER commanded a religious hit. He also spent his adult life trying to tell the Jewish folks needed to stop their wrongful ways…they had him killed to. The first christian killed by Jews and the last one might be killed by Muslims and you think one is superior to the other? You might be missing my point….stop killing for God, ANY God.

  • [-1] June 22, 2014 at 6:46pm

    Have you read the OT? The Jewish folks killed three and twenty thousand on one outing to kill those who worshiped idols…they had a jealous God who was unhappy if not prayed to. That many faiths have ceased to kill others of a different faith is a good thing but it does go against some bible teachings. Of the three ME religions,only the Christ said ” Be not afraid…I come in Peace” The other two are kill and conquer tales for their God.

  • June 22, 2014 at 6:39pm

    Certainly true of the current religion based violence. A few decades ago the Catholic-Protestant terrorism in N.Ireland and spreading into IDE’s in London was the slaughter fest. Irish-Catholics stopped supporting the IRA, the Irish jihadist, after the killing of civilians, military and cops were open season for decades as were Catholics by the UK. India has it’s religious bombings almost daily, again with little basis other than who the other prays to. What’s missing in the Muslim faith is a jihad against the jihadist. 100 of millions of Muslims condemning the current terrorists. The Jews have the JDL, Christians have various small insane sects and almost all are rejected and not supported. Until Muslims clean their own house it falls on others to do so before they are hurt. The ball is and has been in the hands of reasonable Muslims which is most of them…the other silent majority.

    Any back-up systems would do so in real time,hourly, daily, weekly. So any computer crash would only lost the data sense the last backup. So either the backups were deleted or the backups failed. This isn’t 1988 and networks and backups are a new technology. People are lying either to cover up errors or incompetence. Never forget almost always the cover up is a greater wrong the the act being covered up. Lastly, what “crime”? I have looked and asked others to provide the criminal statue that was violated and have zero. It certainly appears that IRS policy/protocols were violated but you don’t get arrested for policy violations, you get suspended, demoted or fired. Can anyone show me the criminal statue and penalty that may have been violated ? We don’t arrest people for unwritten law violations. None of which excuses the abuse that appears to have happened but if there is not a crime…no one gets arrested and if they were the court would throw it out and if not a jury would acquit. Otherwise you have the govt.arresting and prosecuting people with no basis in law.

    @snooop1e
    @Jim S
    So then the question(s) then become(s)
    Do you belong to a church that teaches that those who believe in Jesus yet continue to live in sin are still “saved” Do you belong to (or attend) a church that teaches that salvation is by faith alone apart from obedience to God? If so then you are part of the problem and not on the winning team.

    First we are all sinners and all fail, if we weren’t there would have been no need for the Christ. Faith without works seems meaningless to me. There are no “winning teams” we choose,free will. If we are wrong and there is no God, are you and me on the “losing team”? Does a remarried couple living in an adulterous marriage according to the Christ, split ? Stay together in their sinful marriage ? Can they ask for forgiveness and yet continue together and be “saved”? I don’t know, but if they can then so must the homosexual. Both are sorry for the sin but continue doing it. Should any church perform marriages in violation of the Christ’s teaching ,gay or straight ? Sure, I just won’t be a member and they can answer for their choices/sins when the time comes. Are all the people attending the adulterous marriage of straights as wrong as those who support a gay marriage? My church will not marring a divorced person absent “immoral” acts by the spouse( adultery, physical abuse or abandonment of the spouse or children). It maybe wrong but I freely choose to agree.

  • June 22, 2014 at 1:59am

    @snooop1e
    well that is my point. The more popular sins of straights are some how more acceptable than the sins of gays. Neither of which is a good thing or acceptable to God. However,some sins of the flesh seem very acceptable as long as it is boy/girl.Why else would “Christian” churches marry 2nd-3rd-4th times? That seems to spit in the face of the Christ. Not being gay/bi or homophobic, I could not care less what consenting adults choose to do with each other. I am very happy with my wife, my God and trying to be better .

  • June 21, 2014 at 10:51pm

    Rafael I agree! She is very beatable, just one. Unless you are the Republican candidate. In that case you are very,very very beatable. Now if we can locate a candidate that can unite the Republican Party, attract conservative Democrats and a few independents, we might have an excellent chance. You however can’t even unite a few dozen fellow senators. Thanks for the observation, I agree, don’t get in the way. However,run for Gov.of Texas, have a term or two actually running something and I’ll be happy to reconsider. Telling me how bad Barry is no indication of your ability to lead.

    ..because if God’s time is our time then quite a few “prophesies” fall apart. ” before this generation passes away, i will come again”..see! God’s time must be different because if it’s not ? Well let’s not go there. If somebody told you I died on Friday and you saw me at WalMart on Sunday,would you assume I rose from the dead? Didn’t die? Perhaps got some bad info ? See I believe in God but embrace science. If we didn’t we would be throwing virgins in volcanoes to stop earthquakes or to make it rain or stop the Sun from being eaten. Epilepsy a sure sign of demon possession. Knowledge is a two sided sword, it explains the why ,which may collide with past misunderstanding. Science changes and updates as knowledge is added. The theory of evolution is still a theory although widely accepted as true even if chunks are still missing. As more is known some or all of the current theory may stand or fall. If you have proof evolution theory is false,gather your data and research and present it for peer review. Earthquakes are the plates striking each other not a unhappy God..science. None of which disproves God.It’s not an either or situation.”Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground…” Oh from the primordial sludge that science says life came from without the details Bronze Age people could never comprehend? Maybe.

  • [10] June 21, 2014 at 1:14pm

    As a Christ follower I must respect freedom of choice as does the Christ. Perhaps your church is a sin-free zone, but I think the Christ came for the sinners.Does your church remarry people ? 2nd-3rd- marriages,divorced women being remarried ? The Christ was quite specific regarding adultery in remarrying and divorce. Do you allow that in your church? Did your pastor drop the 1st wife for the cute younger secretary? How many church blessed adulterers sit next to you at service? Just how many Satan followers do you have ? I don’t support same sex religious marriage and would not be a member of a church that did. However,I see most Christian churches blessing marriages in direct violation on the teachings of the Christ. I guess some hetro sins are more acceptable than gay ones. In the mean time you and I will not be at this church. However,perhaps hearing the good word will change some ways in the gay members. It hasn’t got thru to enough straight ones.

    For centuries the process of peer review has been recognized as an integral part of the scientific enterprise. In fact, nowadays a technical finding is not considered a bona fide scientific result unless and until it has passed peer review. This is an important point — there is no such thing as non-peer-reviewed science. In fact, most scientific research institutions, as a matter of strict policy, do not announce a research finding until it not only has passed peer review, but has actually appeared in the scientific journal or conference proceedings to which it was submitted.

    Along this line, note that whenever scientific issues are “debated” in any other forum — blogs, discussion forums, news columns, political campaigns, legislative bodies, television and radio, etc. — such discussions are not to be taken seriously, particularly when the writers or speakers are not highly qualified research scientists.

    It is also keep important to keep in mind a principle popularized by Carl Sagan: extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence [Sagan1998, pg. 60]. Thus manuscripts that make strong claims, such as that some long-standing theory is fundamentally faulty, or that a long-standing mystery has been resolved, or that long-sought experimental evidence has been found, then such manuscripts are scrutinized particularly carefully, and the authors are expected to provide exceptionally convincing reasoning and documentation.
